Take a trip from JFK, New York, to Florence, Italy, and see for yourself why Forbes Magazine dubbed Florence one of the most "beautiful cities in the world."
Florence is best known as the birthplace of the Renaissance. The locals once raised sheep on Florence's rocky hills, and the wool sold in downtown markets helped fund the arts. The city's hills are covered with flowers, earning it the nickname, "City of Flowers." Galleries, family-owned restaurants, and small shops line the buzzing streets of the historic old town.
The beautiful Basilica di Santa Croce should not be missed, nor the Cathedral of Florence, which iconic red dome serves as the city’s most prominent landmark. Visit the world-famous Uffizi Gallery, hosting a Renaissance exhibition second to none, and marvel at the impressive artwork by the likes of Michelangelo, Donatello, and Leonardo.
The Italian metropolis also has plenty to offer for any fashion lover, as Gucci, Ferragamo, Pucci, and Cavalli are all headquartered in Florence. Besides all that, Florence is a great central point for traveling through the rest of Italy. Book your flight now to experience the history, food, art and fashion of Florence, Italy.
